When I walked in the door of Hi-Rise, these two signs immediately caught my attention. One advertised yummy-sounding and interesting flavored soups; the other promoted an environmentally-friendly practice. Both of these signs made me want to find out more about this little bakery.
Inside, the bakery was cozy and quint with a small counter and display case. (I later discovered seating for patrons upstairs.) The menu offered soups, sandwiches, quiches, and all kinds of scrumptious-looking baked goods.
After a little indecision (and a lot of drooling), I decided on the Oatmeal Coconut Pecan cookie, which ended up being an excellent choice. I even changed my status on Facebook to honor this amazing cookie!
Check out the whole pecans baked right into the cookie!
The Oatmeal Coconut Pecac cookie was firm, but at the same time, soooo incredibly soft, almost muffin-like, on the inside. Pieces of shredded coconut pervaded the inside of the cookie. Mmmmm!
* My boss informed me that the Hi-Rise location near Harvard Square is actually the satellite location, which is much smaller. The main Hi-Rise Bread Bakery is in Huron Village.
